The Cambodian Davis Cup squad departed Phnom Penh for Vietnam yesterday evening for their April 2nd Asia/ Oceania group III Davis Cup campaign opener in Hanoi’s My Dinh Sports complex.

At a joint news conference at the Cambodian Country Club on Tuesday, Tennis Cambodia secretary-general Tep Rithivit was optimistic of Cambodia’s chances.

“Our tennis players are confident of reaching the next group stage, said Rithivit. “And it would be a great result if we can achieve it – so soon after our 2017 promotion.”

The eight other nations vying for just two slots in Group II are Jordan, Kuwait, Saudi Arabia, Pacific Oceania, Syria, Malaysia, Qatar and hosts Vietnam. Sunday’s official draw will divide the nine into two groups.

Cambodia regained a coveted group III spot in 2017 and earned the distinction of finishing their campaign undefeated after seeing off Oman in their promotion playoff in the Davis Cup Group IV Asia/Oceania round in Isa Town, Bahrain.

The Cambodian team were struggling to keep up, despite the decision to call on the younger generation. It may take them a few years to develop players who will take them to a higher level of play.

Cambodia’s Davis Cup team serves up changes after bust-up
5 April 2018
Cambodia’s tennis dynamic is set for a shift towards building a strong second line following a decision by non-playing captain Tep Rithivit and national head coach Braen Aneiros that it was time for the younger generation to take over the torch from seasoned campaigners like Bun Kenny, who has pivoted the Kingdom’s Davis Cup efforts over the past six years.

Cambodia suffered their second rubberless defeat in the ongoing Asia/ Oceania Group III series against a strong Vietnam line-up at the My Dinh Sports Complex Indoor Arena on Wednesday night.

Saudis relegate Cambodia to Davis Cup Group IV
8 April 2018
Cambodia’s hard earned promotion to Group III last year in Bahrain was lost at the My Dinh Sports Complex indoor arena in Hanoi on Saturday night after the Kingdom went down 0-3 to Saudi Arabia in the relegation playoff to drop down to the lowest tier of competition in the next Davis Cup Asia/Oceania zone cycle.

At the start, Cambodia’s survival instincts kicked in and 19-year-old Delton Sophana Kim, who returned to the squad after a gap of three years, squeezed out the first set on the one break point out of the five he got against Saud Alhaqbani in the opening rubber.

But that was as far as Sophana Kim was allowed to go as his rival took control of the court at the start of the second set and never slackened his grip to give Saudi Arabia a 1-0 advantage after completing a 4-6, 6-1, 6-2 win stretching out to little more than two hours;

With pressure mounting on Long Samneang to keep the hope of a comeback alive in the second singles match, the Cambodian right-hander, who has been part of Davis Cup stints since 2012, could hardly contain a rampaging Ammar Alhaqbani, who raced to a 6-1, 6-2 win to put the tie beyond Cambodia’s reach.

“To be honest I have mixed feelings right now. Obviously I am terribly disappointed going down to Group IV. But at the same time, I feel it is a good time for Tennis Cambodia to give an opportunity for young and inexperienced players to be the leaders of the national team,’’ head coach Braen Aneiros told The Post.

Cambodian pride as valiant Juniors improve in Davis Cup
By Phnom Penh Post -
March 13, 2019

The Kingdom’s 16-years-and-under tennis team came away from a memorable 2019 Junior Davis Cup by BNP Paribas pre-qualifying tournament in Colombo, Sri Lanka with pride very much intact and high hopes for the future, after improving on their 2016 showing.

Following losses to Pacific Oceania and Turkmenistan in the round-robin pool, Cambodia were placed in a back-draw with the other teams that had placed third or fourth in their respective pools.
